Audits

A comparison between how it is and how it should be.

Airline audit

Airline Audit

AviationAudits.nl leads your team of specialists.

An Airline audit is generally performed in case of code sharing or wet-lease. Wet-lease is normally based on a so-called ACMI agreement. The abbreviation stands for Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance. These matters are taken care of by the lessor. All other matters have to be taken care of by the lessee.

The lessee has the obligation to convince himself that the lessor meets all legal requirements. This obligation is fulfilled by performing an Airline audit.

EASA Air Operations Audit

AviationAudits.nl safeguards the required independence.

EASA Air Operations is the legislation which is the basis of the safe flight operation within the operating area of the European Union, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. EASA Air Operations contains the requirements for holders of an Air Operator Certificate (AOC).

An EASA Air Operations audit concerns the performance of (parts) of an airline company.

Part-145 audit

Part-145 audit

We specialise in audits at maintenance companies.

EASA Part-145 audits are performed at line-, base- or component maintenance companies. We use dedicated checklists to optimise the audit accuracy. All aspects of the organisation are be audited.

The guideline for the content of the Part-145 is GM 145.A.65(c)(1).

Ground Operations audit

Ground Operations audit

An airline has to incorporate all aspects of the operation in its Compliance Monitoring Programme. This obligation is based of ORO.GEN.200. Approximately half of the flights is carried out from an outstation. It is obvious that also the performance of the usually contracted handling companies is verified by means of an audit.

A Ground Operations audit exists of three components; Ramp Handling, Passenger Handling and Operations. This audit is mainly conducted based on Regulation EASA Air Operations. A number of subjects are however subject to other legislation such as the EU security regulations.

The Ground Operations audit is conducted by means of interviews, review of documents and observation of activities. such as the handling of an aircraft on the ramp and passenger check-in. Everything of course with special attention to flight safety.

During the preparation of the audit, a planning is made for the execution of the audit. This planning includes subjects such as organisation, training, observations and a visit to the maintenance facilities of ground equipment. If the handling is performed by more than one sub-contractor, the general subjects will be examined separately at every sub-contractor.

During a Ground Operations audit the auditors are frequently surprised by unexpected occurrences. It happens that flights which have to be observed are delayed or activities are performed differently than contracted. In these cases the audit planning will have to be adjusted. This demands a lot of creativity and adaptability of the auditors.

AviationAudits.nl has extensive experience with Ground Operations audits and has an especially developed checklist for this type of audit.

Part M audit

Part M audit

EASA Part M contains the legislation for Continuing Airworthiness. Expressed in a simple manner are these the rules which prescribe how to keep an existing aircraft airworthy. EASA Part-M regulates the Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation and its activities.

An EASA Part M audit concerns subjects as contracts, reliability, maintenance programme, airwothiness directive compliance and flight safety. The audit is carried out at both the CAMO and possible sub-contracted companies.

An important component is Part M.A.I. – Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC). This part contains the periodic renewal of the airworthiness certificate of every aircraft within the operators fleet. If you wish, it is possible to carry out a separate audit on the ARC process.

AviationAudits.nl also has experience with the performance of ARC reviews and has already succesfully passed a supervised review. Please contact us for more information on ARC reviews.

AviationAudits.nl performs EASA Part M audits by means of a specially developed checklist.

De-icing / Anti-icing audit

De-icing / Anti-icing audit

De-icing/Anti-icing is a specialistic subject which usually is shortened to de-icing. The execution of a de-icing audit demands a thorough knowledge of legislation, fluids, aerodynamics and winter conditions.

The basis for de-icing audits is the lates edition of the AEA Recommendations for De-Icing / Anti-Icing Aeroplanes on the Ground. Annually the Association of European Airlines (AEA) issues these AEA recommendations , in which the latest insights have been processed. De-icing/Anti-icing audits are normally performed in the months of November up to and including March.

Specifications for fluids, vehicles and facilities are laid down by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

Two types of de-icing audits can be distinguished; the audit on the performance of the treatment and the audit on the post de-icing inspection. These audits can be conducted separately or combined, depending on the tasks which the company concerned carries out.

A de-icing audit consists roughly of two parts. The theoretical part pays attention to procedures, training and communication with the crew. The practical part includes inspection of vehicles and facilities and taking fluid samples.

Fluid sampling is performed according the AEA Recommendations. All samples from vehicles and storage tanks are examined on the spot for contamination, concentration and pH value.

AviationAudits.nl also offers training for de-icing / anti-icing auditors. Please contact us for more information.

AviationAudits.nl makes use of a De-icing/Anti-icing audit checklist, which is based on the model described in AEA Recommendations 6.1.4

Training

We work together with leading training organisations!

Auditor practical training

Auditor practical training

Why practical training? Starting auditors have followed a proper theoretical training. This training normally consists of some days of theory and a practice-audit. Carrying out a proper audit is however the same as driving a car. You can only learn it in practice! To be able to conduct a proper audit, you need a considerable amount of practical experience and the necessary guidance.

De-/Anti-icing training

Auditee Coaching

Auditee Coaching

For persons with little experience audit experience, an audit can be a tense matter. Questions as: “What implies such an audit exactly?” , “What do those auditors want to see?” and “How do I adopt the correct attitude?” haunt through the mind of the auditee.

For the auditee it is important to be well prepared. Of course an in-depth knowledge of the subject, the associated legislation and its own organisation is very important.
